RichMcCoy

Product Design Director

For over two decades, I've built a career rooted in user-centric design and genuine connections. I believe impactful digital products can be crafted not just with clever pixels, but with empathy, data-driven insights, and unwavering integrity.

My passion lies in understanding the human element. From e-commerce platforms to social campaigns, I delve into user needs and motivations, designing experiences that guide, delight, and convert.

Collaboration is my cornerstone. I foster inclusive environments where diverse perspectives and voices are valued, nurturing talent and building high-performing teams that dance to the rhythm of user-centric solutions. Agile methodologies are my trusty compass, allowing us to rapidly iterate and refine, ensuring every element hits the right note.

Beyond the surface, I seek authenticity. Human psychology and storytelling are not just tools, but guiding lights to craft meaningful experiences that connect with users on a deeper level. I embrace cutting-edge technologies like AR and AI, but not as flashy gimmicks, but as potent tools to amplify expression and build genuine, lasting connections.

I'm not just a design leader, I'm a bridge builder. I connect business goals with user needs, translating ideas into realities with integrity and purpose. In the digital landscape, I'm a trusted guide, harmonising creativity, and technology,  to create experiences that not only resonate, but leave a positive impact on the world.
